Do I Have a Case?

While the specific circumstances of abuse vary, elder abuse involves an elderly person experiencing some form of abuse caused by a caregiver, such as nursing home staff.

Common Types of Compensable Nursing Home Abuse

There are several types of abuse an elderly person could suffer at the hands of a caregiver, some of which are:

  • Emotional abuse
  • Neglect
  • Physical abuse
  • Involuntary seclusion
  • Misappropriation of property

Common Types of Neglect

If a caregiver doesn’t give the elderly person the care they need or fails to protect them from possible harm, this is neglect. Neglect may include a failure to provide:

  • Medications or medical treatment
  • Hygiene care
  • Clothing
  • Nutrition and hydration
  • Safety
  • Access to daily activities

Are You Within the Legal Time Limit to Seek Compensation?

The statute of limitations is the time frame for filing a lawsuit. In West Virginia, the statute of limitations on elder abuse is two years after the date the abuse occurred or was discovered. If the abuse occurred over time, the case can be challenging. If you miss the deadline, you may lose your right to file a lawsuit or seek compensation. It’s best to consult an attorney like the experienced West Virginia nursing home abuse lawyers at Stewart Bell, PLLC, if you’re concerned about the statute of limitations. Our attorneys will keep track of all the deadlines and ensure your case stays on track.
